Belgravia Apparel and Campbell Page have partnered up to provide sustainable jobs for not one, not two but seven Adelaide locals who live with a disability.
Too often, hardworking, and motivated people are overlooked because they live with a disability. There are 2.1 million Australians of working age with disability. Of these, just under half were employed (47.8%), compared with 80.3% of people without disability (source: Australian Network on Disability)
Our customers have been settling into their new roles and performing a range of tasks including quality control, using equipment such as heat transfer presses, packing orders, retail support and applying logos and personalisation’s for a range of Belgravia’s clients.
“You get to learn all aspects of the manufacturing industry” – Dani, Campbell Page Customer
Future job opportunities
Three of the seven recruits have also been given further training opportunities since starting work. They are now studying nationally recognized certificates in Supply Chain Management or Process Manufacturing.
“Being able to develop skills and support the long-term future of these colleagues is very rewarding for us” – Belgravia Apparel Supply Chain Manager, Stephen Ladley.
Along with learning new skills, they’re also enjoying all the perks that come with finding a job. Meeting new people, more financial independence, and building their confidence in the workplace thanks to a supportive and understanding employer.
“It feels like [working with] family. It’s a supportive environment.” – Adrian, Campbell Page Customer.
Creating recruitment solutions
The partnership has also eased recruitment frustrations and supported business growth for Belgravia Apparel, who were struggling to find high quality candidates. They were relying on referrals or advertising through online job boards to find employees that unfortunately, just weren’t the right fit.
“There was a significant number of lost hours trying to resolve recruitment. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome from the partnership. By understanding our culture, our business operations and regularly checking in with us, our expectations have been exceeded”- Belgravia Apparel Supply Chain Manager, Stephen Ladley.
We’re thrilled to be working with Belgravia Apparel to create sustainable jobs for local people as well as providing ongoing training and support to our Campbell Page customers.
Whether you’re living with a disability and looking for work, or are looking to hire staff for your business, Campbell Page can help. We don’t just team up with you, we get in your corner and find the solution that’s right for you.
